The name “Buell” has been in Hebron for centuries. One of those was Elton Buell, who lived on Gilead Street and had inherited a successful saw mill operation from his father. He married Grace Denslow Lyman, the daughter of George Lyman.

Elton and Grace’s story is one of love, tragedy and triumph; the George Lyman diaries give a vivid portrayal of Elton and Grace’s life together. Their story was recently published in Hebron/Marlborough Life.

Elton’s granddaughter, Dorothy Ann Ganter Giglio, has carefully preserved much of the Buell and Lyman family history, and recently donated a number of documents and artifacts to the Hebron Historical Society.

It is through contributions such as Dorothy’s that the Society is able to share Hebron history.
